Eagle Beach is more Eagle than Beach... at least that's our experience. We took a self-guided tour to the beach, and found very little beach... but plenty of eagles. Eagle Beach is mostly gravel - along a route to the sea. And eagles seem to...More

Just a really nice beach, and easy walk from the road, with great view back towards the icefield. These reviews are supposed to be 100 characters so this is a bonus sentence.

This is a beautiful area and worth a stop especially if on a cruise and try to get away from the thousands of fellow passengers dumped on the city. We didn't see any eagles here, but some in our party had a too close for...More

Bald eagles everywhere! A very, very scenic area. We rented a car and drove out to this beach - scenic drive. Lots of bear tracks etc., salmon, ravens and eagles.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We were ALONE on the south part of the beach, with just one other family way on the other end. Watched eagles perched on logs in the water, flying around, and two huge juvenile bald eagles...More

Was able to see plenty of eagles in the distance, across the river. Many flying high in the sky, while others were nested in the trees!

We hiked the paths for a few hours - mostly shaded, mostly flat. The beach is expansive. And we saw so. many. eagles. Up close, flying right by us, in the water - everywhere.

The birds like the low tide and the flats for picking at fish - not necessarily swooping down to catch them! Soooo many eagles in one place. At high tide - only two!

We were able to get close enough to eagles to fill the frame. These are the best eagle photos I gotten in my 3 previous trips to Alaska!
